Your Itinerary

  • Board Marco Polo in Bristol, today. Get to know the cruise staff and your fellow passengers as your UK cruise begins this afternoon, and, later, enjoy dinner on board.
  • Marco Polo arrives at St Mary's in the sheltered waters of the Isles of Scilly, this morning. Explore Hugh Town and the lovely landscape that surrounds it, or cross to Tresco for the chance to see the spectacular sub-tropical plan collection at Abbey Gardens.
  • Today your cruise takes you across the Channel to Honfleur. Relax in town or join a shore excursion into the Normandy countryside - perhaps even heading to Monet’s magical gardens at Giverny.
  • Spend today at sea, relaxing as Marco Polo cruises back into UK waters.
  • This morning we’ll arrive in Newcastle. Head ashore to visit the city, or simply relax on board.
  • Invergordon, in one of Britain’s great natural harbours welcomes Marco Polo, today. Here you’ll be able to join shore excursions to Loch Ness and Loch Ness, or perhaps head to the Royal Golf Club at Dornoch or the famous Ord whisky distillery.

  • A stop in Orkney’s tiny capital, Kirkwall, brings the chance to discover the unique history, traditions and wildlife of these rugged yet beautiful islands, which encircle the historic waters and long-standing naval base of Scapa Flow.

  • Today Marco Polo arrives in the Outer Hebrides and anchors off Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. Wander the streets of the town, or visit the 4000-year-old stone circle at Callanish to marvel at the way the island’s deeply embedded human history enhances the rugged beauty of the landscape.
  • Discover the delightful scenery and spectacular wildlife of the island of Mull, and wander the colourful waterfront of pretty Tobermory, as Marco Polo stops here, today.
  • Belfast offers a range of interesting diversions. From the Titanic Quarter to the historic city centre, and to the vast ’stone staircase’ of the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim Coast beyond, there’s plenty see on your day here.
  • The Isle of Man, where time seems to stand still and visitors are transported back to a gentler-paced era, welcomes Marco Polo today. Explore the island capital, Douglas, and perhaps join an optional shore excursion to discover the beauty of the island's rugged landscape.
  • Disembark at the end of a wonderful spring cruise as Marco Polo returns to Bristol today.
